Implants VS Veneers
What is the difference between veneers and implants?
Implants replace teeth that have been damaged or lost because of trauma, gum disease and tooth decay. An implant replaces a lost tooth with an artificial tooth replacement. Dental implants are strong and durable.
Veneers can also be used to cover damaged or injured teeth, fitting like a shell over your teeth to fill in gaps, create smooth surfaces, protect tooth enamel worn down by age, and straighten uneven tooth alignment, and cracked and chipped teeth.
What are the problems associated with veneers?
Veneers can shift if they aren’t bonded to your teeth correctly. If this happens, they can recede from your gum line, causing problems in the future such as tooth decay and gum disease.
Implants are typically a life-long solution and generally last about 25 years. Implants are inserted and attached directly to bone to provide a stable anchor for artificial teeth.
Veneers generally last about 10 years before they need to be replaced.
While implants require the same care as a natural tooth, because they are stable, they reduce the risk of gum disease and the resulting bone loss.
